Somewhere along the line, I must have inherited my mother's love of chickens. I'm not sure when it happened exactly, but I'm certain that I didn't appreciate the huge collection of chicken statues, pictures, and what-not that adorned her kitchen when I was growing up. In fact, I remember thinking her collection was ridiculous, and I couldn't help but wonder why a person would choose to collect chickens of all things. I certainly never would have guessed that someday when I grew up I'd have a chicken collection of my own. My love of chickens is not confined to my kitchen. It has carried over into my stamping, and my favorite chickens are the crazy and oh-so-lovable creations of Anna Wight. Her chickens make my heart happy, and when she released her new Beach Bum set with a chicken in a floatie, I knew I just HAD to have it!
Yesterday was a mail day made in heaven! I got 4 packages! One was my Beach Bum set from Whipper Snapper. Another was a beachy set I ordered from Unity Stamps. The 3rd package was 15 new copic markers and the 11 brand spankin' new colors of spica glitter pens. I used them on this card, and the colors are yummy! The 4th package was a gorgeous pink and brown lampwork bracelet, earrings, and pendant set I ordered off Etsy. Jewelry from Etsy is my latest addiction. It ranks up there pretty close to Anna's chickens! ;)
